fleur, commissioner moeller and clark, welcome, happy holidays. i have one question on the tax credit and start with you in the sugar. as you know the next ten years some wind turbine orders will get tax credit hours for every hour they run. this tax credit was designed to kickstart renewables. and yes yet, it lives on the spe way and being a major part of the grid. at least 12% in my state of texas capacity. but some markets have seen prices as low as negative $41 per megawatt hour as operators get the credit and run whether that power is needed or not. granted that is an extreme example, but they can settle a lawsuit taxpayers make them whole. that moves markets back home on the new power construction in texas that public utility commission chairwoman nelson has said and this is a quote for the market distortion is caused by the renewable energy incentives one of the primary causes this distortion makes it difficult for other generation types to cover the cost and discourages investment in the new generati generation. and while the ptc isn't the only driver of the market distortion, it is a s
, but also talking about new fees to raise revenue instead of tax hikes. from what you're hearing this general framework, could you support it? >> well, it depends. the trillion dollars you're talking about is higher than what the existing law is and i would point out that speaking of existing law, we have one that specifies the level of discretionary spending. specifies that at $967 billion. so from my point of view if we're going to spend more than that, then we ought to find offsetting savings some where else, which i'm very much open to. i know our friends on the other side of the aisle want there to be revenue. we're not going to support tax increases. are there some categories of revenue that are of a different nature? >> such as? >> for instance, federal employees have very generous retirement plans. if we asked them to contribute a little bit more to their retirement plan, that gets scored as revenue but i think it's legitimate to see that as savings so it really depends on the composition of the package. >> do you think there will be a deal by the end of the year? >> i th

. and this is no doubt a product of republican policies that provide tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. grasp this number since the great recession started. 95% of income gains since 2009 have gone to the top 1%. sure, it's been a great return during the recession for the top 1 and 2%. but that line down at the bottom, it's still there. and the green line is when ronald reagan's trickle-down economics took effect. this graphic is a product of trickle-down economics. it doesn't work for wage-earners at all. republicans right now, they've got nothing to offer wage earners. nothing. nothing is on the table. no job security, no health care, no jobs, package, nothing. and here is their focus. on thursday, republican lawmakers attended the american legislative exchange council's, a.l.e.c.'s annual policy summit. full disclosure, our parent company, comcast, along with many other parent corporations, are associated with a.l.e. krcht, a conservative conversation that pushes stand your ground and opposes the minimum wage increase. this summit basically was a back room event. there were no recording de
that tax dollars are not going to be subsidizing abortions here. your reaction to their assertion? >> that is basically an outright lie, no tax money goes towards paying abortions. essentially they have this exact legislation that the state legislature approved last year. however, governor rick snyder vetoed it because it saddles women unnecessarily with extra costs. what woman ever ands the victim of a crime or potentially being raped? what they want to do in order to avoid having the governor sign the bill, they had to get 3% of michigan's population to sign a petition saying that they believe in this legislation. what's next, they have 40 days to get the legislature to pass it. and because the legislature has voted and passed this legislation it's likely they'll do it again. >> the assertion from -- let me play in her own words, genevieve martin. let's play what she said regarding tax dollars here. >> the impetus behind this is that we believe abortion is not health care and that tax dollars should not be going to subsidize abortion. this is not about the legality of abortion o

-time or full-time equivalent employees. to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty for tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee. but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are attributed to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner. however, when an individual share ownership with multiple entity, or when a business has multiple owners, the answer is less clear. today we will exam the process of determining whether businesses are considered single or multiple entities under the health care law. which requires business owners to aggravate employees and could subject a business to the bureaucracy employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses 20 or more employees own at least 10% of one or more other businesses. to determine if the threshold of 50 or more employees has been met in these situations, the health care law utilizes the internal revenue service code controlled group businessing a gracious rules. which are complex and confusing even for most
investment for our tax payers? >> it is not spending, it's an investment. you are absolutely correct. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> i appreciate this opportunity. it's a fascinating conversation. i want to focus on the testimony of dr. robinson. hearing is important because it highlights the testimony of now moving as a away from a philosophy toward higher education that focuses only on access and starts to look at success. i'm a product of pell grants. i could not have graduated from wabash college without pell grants. i have lived the importance of these degrees great but the world has changed a lot in last 40 years. i would say the federal financial aid system is one of the great success stories in the history of the federal government. access, weal was provided access to higher education for people in this country like never before. the challenge is, when these programs started 40 years ago, access was enough. when you looked at the income potential is someone with just a little time in college, your income potential was higher. today, that has changed. if you don't gr
by some now is not the time to raise taxes, yet the house budget cannot produce spending bills from the appropriations committee that can actually pass on the house floor. in some cases, they appear to not even be able to pass from subcommittee. all the while we're looking at a sea of unmet needs and face a floundering economy. there is one area that can help break the logjam, not solve all our problems, certainly, but help us significantly along the way. congress should address the critical needs of our nation's infrastructure deficit. roads, bridges, transit systems are all increasingly at risk. we are facing an inadequate state of repair, construction of new facilities are on hold and we are losing ground in meeting our own needs, let alone the challenges of global competition. yet, this challenge is an opportunity for some potential progress. we know what to do to meet this challenge. we can write a new transportation bill that will meet today's needs. it just needs more money. there is a vast coalition that supports additional resources for infrastructure. the so-called special

prominent, taxes were slashed for the wealthiest, while investments in things that make us all richer, like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither. and for a certain period of time, we could ignore this weakening economic foundation, in part because more families were relying on two earners as women entered the workforce. we took on more debt financed by a juiced-up housing market. but when the music stopped, and the crisis hit, millions of families were stripped of whatever cushion they had left. and the result is an economy that's become profoundly unequal, and families that are more insecure. i'll just give you a few statistics. since 1979, when i graduated from high school, our productivity is up by more than 90%, but the income of the typical family has increased by less than 8%. since 1979, our economy has more than doubled in size, but most of that growth has flowed to a fortunate few. the top 10% no longer takes in one-third of our income -- it now takes half. whereas in the past, the average ceo made about 20 to 30 times the income of the average worker, today's ceo now
would have to work 75 hours a week to have the after-tax income that this company thought was basic to a family budget, 75 hours a week. low wages aren't a problem just in the fast food industry. i don't want to just pick on wal-mart and mcdonald's. it's catching up in many other traditional jobs that used to be able to support a family. there may be fewer, better examples of this than in the banking sector. the banking industry in america last year posted $141.3 billion in profits. the median executive pay in the banking industry in america is $552,000 a year. and yet, a recent report found that 39% of bank tellers in the state of new york are on public assistance. low-wage worker is just not enough to get by. working 40 hours a week at 7.25 translates into $15,080 a year. that's about $400 less than the federal poverty level guidelines for a family of two. if you accept the sample budget that we've talked about, a worker making the minimum wage would have to work 75 hours a week to have the after-tax income necessary to make ends meet. working 75 hours a week at a minimum wage wit

talk about, tax, regulations. so talk about what you're hearing on the hill, what you're hearing at the white house. is there a chance to pass minimum wage nationally even through the senate? >> the minimum wage talk -- you hear that much more to the side than the unemployment insurance. steve and his chart noted minimum wage hiked in bush years 2007 the country had not gone through a recession and things were looking good. it took a huge amount of capital from the senators. ted kennedy keys speech pushed the bill over the top. i don't hear much talk or optimism that we're going to get a hike to $10.10. in fact you hear more skepticism about that. with respect to unemployment insurance, you're starting to see the debate heat up in part because it comes at a cruel time. it would be right after christmas, december 28th. you have about 1.3 million people losing benefits. the question is how do you pay for it. right now the cost is about $25 billion so these budget negotiations that are happening right now they are trying to figure out if they can find money to pay for that $25 billi
